Interview: This woman chose not to have any kids

"I decided not to have children for the future of our planet." This choice, Leilani Münter made it 25 years ago. And today, in the light of environmental crises, she is more convinced than ever that this is the right decision.

    I agree. Stupid ppl should decide not to have kids. Afterall it's a stupid decision. It's enough for 2 ppl to have just 1 kid and the population goes to 1/2. The problem is that stupid ppl have 3-5 kids and the smart ones 1 or none...

    I’m 25 and so far I have never wanted children. Part of that feeling has always been that the earth is overcrowded. If I ever change my mind I want to adopt an orphan. Thank you for spreading this message Leilani!

    Fair play to you. Whatever your choice in life to make it worth living, is up to you. At the end of the day. Whatever makes you happy is the main thing, for me, i was thinking the other way around, what if this BIG world has only very little people in it. isn’t it too boring to live in? 😂 obviously i have children, 4 of them, and i will live happily ever after! 😂🙏

    So i racon that she did a good decition by not having a baby .. not because she is right but because the Earth full of jerks who have these ideas of enviromental stuff so we dont need a new brilliant child of her with same mentality .. God devided the livlyhood on Earth in enough way for All humans . So instead of depriving innocent mothers having babes with this stupid argument why dont you come against war traders and politics and barons who steals billions of peoples recources and money haaa???

    The Bible says be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth. The truth is that mankind can do nothing to save the earth by not having children. Even with the best environmental actions, these can only provide temporary solutions. The Scriptures say that God will create a new heaven and a new earth wherein dwelleth righteousness. Only then when the pollutant - 'sin and sinners' will be destroyed will we have a permanent solution to the world's problem. If you want to be a part of that new reality, give your heart to Jesus. Will you do that today.?

    If everyone thinks that way you will see a situation where the human population will stagnate, and many countries will have aging populations with very few people to take care of them. The wealth of this world has to be more evenly distributed. Having many children seems to be a function of poverty. Unless the rich and wealthy get rid of their greed the population explosion will not slow. When one takes a look at the countries where populations have exploded it tells you a simple story, look at Bangladesh and India or even Nigeria.India has a population that is closing in on that of China, but China has three times the size of India. Unless the rich developed nations start to share the wealth of this Earth more evenly populations will continue to explode.
